We made it! With the big PlayStation E3 Showcase in the rear-view mirror, we can turn our attention to the rest of our E3 live programming. And it’s shaping up to be a big week — we’ve got more than 15 hours of live programming on deck through Thursday.
We’ve got some serious games on deck. We’re going to learn a lot more about Days Gone, Detroit, Far Cry 5, Fortnite, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Monster Hunter World, Ni No Kuni II, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. And that’s just on Tuesday!
The unexpected reveal of Shadow of the Colossus during PlayStation’s E3 2017 Media Showcase was a rare moment of true surprise and delight. Developed by Bluepoint Games and JAPAN Studio, Shadow of the Colossus looks to be lovingly rebuilt for PS4, making one of the most artistic, emotional, and celebrated games ever made available for a new audience.
The pitch for Star Wars Battlefront II is mind-boggling. Three major development studios are teaming up to create a deep and nuanced multiplayer competitive shooter set across all three Star Wars film eras. Simultaneously, they are developing a new storyline set from the Empire’s perspective that reveals the events between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. “Ambitious” may be an understatement.
I can’t believe I’m writing this, but your friendly neighborhood PlayStation.Blog officially hits the big 1-0 today. Before moving onto tomorrow’s PlayStation Live From E3 2017 programming, I wanted to write you a personal thank-you note — and take a quick stroll down memory lane.
E3 is just days away! Because you’re smart and sophisticated, you already know that we’re livestreaming four days and 15+ hours of PlayStation game updates, new trailers, and developer interviews — and the PlayStation Media Showcase — starting next Monday, June 12 at 5:00pm Pacific Time.
April saw the reveal of Call of Duty: WWII, an eagerly awaited return to the conflict that started it all. Though development is still at an early stage, we wanted to give PlayStation fans a chance to ask a few questions to the team at Sledgehammer Games.
It’s early days, but we hope the morsels of information below will tide you over until E3 next week. Read on, and enjoy!
I’ve played every single Tekken game — all of them, even Death By Degrees — going all the way back to the original PlayStation game. So with Tekken 7 launching today on PS4, it only seemed appropriate to reach out to Katsuhiro Harada, Tekken’s longstanding game director, to reflect on where the series has been — and where the larger fighting-game genre is headed.
Dreams can come true! In our new episode of PlayStation Underground, Justin and I get our first in-depth look at Crash Bandicoot: Warped, the third and final entry in the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy due out in June on PS4. And I’m delighted to report that, 20-odd years later, Crash hasn’t lost any of his charm.
In this episode, Game Director Dan Tenguay explains how developer Vicarious Visions kept the remaster’s overall look and feel authentic, while adding a host of refinements and quality-of-life improvements that will smooth out the experience for the modern gamer.
